Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

Rosey Hearts...Things with Wings

Todays creation is a design team make for the fabulous Rosey Hearts. There is a new challenge over on the Rosey Hearts Challenge Blog and it's theme is Things with wings. Why not pop over, take a look and join in the fun. There is some wonderful inspiration provided by the rest of the team. For my design team make I picked the wizard and friends digi and decided to make a canvas with it. I coloured the wizard, tree, dragon and owl with my copics. I then painted a canvas with my twinkling H2Os, creating a landscape and the trees at the side. I wanted to make it look as if they were entering a forest. The middle of the canvas, I painted in a blue, to look as if the wizards globe was letting out a blue light. It was so much fun doing this, as I got to use some of my stash that I hadn't used for a while. When the canvas had dried, I cut out the wizard group and attached them to the canvas.

I hope that you are all having a good day. It's a lovely day here...the sun is actually shining. It seems to me that BT are playing yet again..the Internet has been on and off all day again and has slowly been driving me mad. The minute you get on a site and try to do the connection goes..and you're sat there watching a little circle going round and round. It's not enough that we have the slowest connection in Wales..they have to mess that up

Well the coffee is calling and I've lots of work to do. It's now 4 o'clock and I've trying to write this blog since 10's unbelievable what BT have driven me to. Hopefully tomorrow they will leave the wires So until then...take care and happy crafting
